The 5th semester project was about extension and
renovating the existing building from 1921: a 4
storey building ( plus basement) with dormers
located in J.M.Mørksgade 9, Aarhus.
I had to analyze the existing building and then
start fulfilling the client’s requirements. One
of them was to provide a new bathroom and kitchen
for each apartment. That meant that I had to
demolish a part of the building and put new steel
construction in there with a lightweight insulated
wall. I had 4 outline proposal options, which I
could choose for design. Another client’s wish
was to close the back stairs and install elevator,
and put new stairs going to the basement, so that
residents have an internal access opportunity to
go to the basement and to the courtyard without
going outside. Another client’s wish was to put
airlock in the basement and replace the windows
for Dannebrogtype windows with the same breakdowns
as the existing one.
Building should fulfill low energy class 2015 in BR10.
